Almond Cookies

What I used:

All purpose flour (Maida) : 2 1/4 cup
Unsalted butter : 1 cup 
Sugar : 3/4 cup
Light brown sugar : 3/4 (firmly packed)
Eggs : 2
Almond extract : 1 1/2 tsp
Baking soda : 1 tsp
salt : 1/2 tsp
Sliced Almonds: : 1 cup or as required

Makes approx 40 cookies

How I did:
  • Preheat oven to 350 deg F with rack in center of oven.  
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Alternatively you can grease with butter.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the butter until smooth and creamy with a hand mixer or an electric mixer.
  • Add the white sugar and brown sugar and beat for atleast 2 minutes or till fluffy.
  • Break the eggs and pour in.  Beat well and add the Almond extract.
  • When combines, sieve in the flour along with baking soda and salt.
  • Beat till all the ingredients are combined properly.
  • Scoop a tablespoonful of batter and drop onto the baking sheet leaving about two inch space between each cookie.  Sprinkle almond slices on the cookie drops.
  • Bake for about 10 to 11 minutes or until the edges turn to golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 more minutes on the same baking sheet.  Remove and let cool completely before storing.
